Kim Cory

Kim Cory has been a lifelong church musician, starting at age 11 playing the organ for Mass.  She grew up in Paynesville, MN, graduated from UM-Duluth in 2000 and received her Masters in Teaching and Learning from St. Mary’s University in 2004. She has taught music education in Benson, Jordan, and Ellsworth before coming to Red Wing to teach vocal music at Twin Bluff Middle School in 2007.  Kim was previously the Director of Music at First Lutheran in Red Wing and in 2009 came to United Lutheran to direct the Bell Choir.  Continuing in that role, Kim also began being the coordinator for Worship and Praise services and band in 2013.  She is also the Director of Music for First United Methodist Church in Red Wing (a quick jaunt across the park). 
While Sunday mornings are quite busy, Kim enjoys spending time with her husband Scott and their four children:  Emma, Riley, Elsa and Eliana.  Kim serves on the negotiation’s team for the Education MN-Red Wing as well as on numerous school and district-wide committees.  She finds that United Lutheran is a wonderful place to make connections with our community and has a beautiful focus on Word and Sacrament.
